Rarely do we see flooding like this in Northern Tasmania! This caravan park (trailer park)-- home to some, a holiday get-away to others, is completely flooded out (all caravans were moved out of harms way to avoid the peaking river). Longfords flood gates to the town were CLOSED yesterday (August 19, 2011), leaving everyone inside the town TRAPPED, and everyone outside the town unable to get back in (till 4PM)!! A natural disaster of this kind hasnt happened for a good long time (certainly not in living memory of many living in Northern Tassie)! Flooding of ALL rivers- South Esk, North Esk, Macquarie, Meander, Tamar and Derwent!! Copyright CoffeeKvetch 2011, All Rights Reserved.
